1. My personality was, in large part, formed by Mad Magazine

in the 1950's. I've never outgrown it. They've still got it!

2. +1! To this day, I recall the first Mad mag I ever

laid eyes on when I was 9 or 10. It was in the back seat of the family car of a little friend of mine, who was the daughter of a university professor in my home town.

Leafing through that issue was a lightening bolt experience that blew open my narrow red-state, RW-family reality.

For the first time, I began to suspect that there might be more out there than I'd been indoctrinated to expect.

Fell in love with Alfred E. Newman on the spot. Was blown away by "Spy vs. Spy". Laughed myself silly over the "movie" parody.

Mad had more than a little to do with honing my sense of humor and my liberal sensibilities.

4. Remember folding the back cover to unearth a hidden picture...

I LOVED Mad Magazine...the Archie comics were fun too.

10. Loved the musical comedy song parodies, such as



When the sky turns a bright atomic yellow
and that cloud starts to mushroom in the glare,
then I'm proud I'm a nuclear physicist,
even though I am fouling the air.

I have heard people rant and rave and bellow
that we're done and we might as well be dead,
but I'm glad I'm a nuclear physicist
with that dust falling out overhead.

They say the human race is falling on its face
and will soon be blasted out of sight.
The things I learned in school
about the molecule
are helping me to prove
they're right!

People yell that I'll turn them into jello,
but I promise I'm not that kind of guy.
I'm just stuck like a dope
with an isotope
and I've just got to give it a try ...
one more try.


It just doesn't get better than that.

12. When I was a kid back in the 1960s, MAD was the only thing

around that wised kids up to the fact that they were being lied to by adults, by the teevee and bty advertising. MAD was a very important part of the education of several generations of American kids.

13. Hell it's even better now...

I stopped reading it when I hit about 18, then when my kids got to be old enough we started grabbing copies until we finally relented and just subscribed.
